Chapter 07: Analytic Geometry and Conic Sections

Conic sections are formed from intersections of a plane and a cone. They include lines, parabolas, ellipses, circles, and hyperbolas. Conic sections model many things in the real world. For example, the shape of a planet's path as it orbits the sun is an ellipse.
